It is a unique and beautiful hotel architectured harmoniously in a sprawling natural setting. The rooms have been refurbished and now maintain the spaciousness of old world with the comforts of the new. The view from the rooms is something out of a Mediterranian picture book.
The food was very average and all the local Srilankan dishes had the same taste base. But the staff more than make up for any minor shortcomings and Mr. Ranjit is someone we won't forget. He went out of his way ensure that our restaurant experience was tempered.
The rocky beach (for which the hotel cannot be blamed) was disappointing but the 2 pools in the hotel made up for this.
With a little modification in the taste and pricing of the food it would be one of the best experiences you could have in Galle.
